Larry Fischer Logs His 2nd 7-Figure Sale THIS WEEK and Morgan Linton Brokers a $542,500 Deal

Less than 24 hours after I published our latest bi-weekly domain sales report, Larry Fischer (GetYourDomain.com), who led this week's chart after brokering a $2,500,000 sale of Marketing.com, announced another 7-figure sale! As Elliot Silver detailed at 

DomainInvesting,com today, Larry's second blockbuster sale of the week was Near.com at $1,150,000 in a sale made to a Singapore-based company that has raised $134 million in funding through its Series D funding rounds. Ari Goldberger and Jason Schaeffer at ESQwire.com handled escrow duties on the deal.

The main theme of this week's sales report was the remarkable frequency of seven-figure sales we've seen this summer (our latest report was the sixth consecutive edition, covering 12 weeks, that has a seven-figure sale at the top of the chart). With the Near.com sale, that streak will become 7 straight when our next edition comes out September 1.  It is especially impressive when you consider that these publicly reported sales are just the tip of a much bigger iceberg.

In yet another impressive sale, Morgan Linton let me know today that he had just finished brokering a $542,500 sale of Able.com. In that transaction, Morgan represented the buyer, whom one of Morgan's friends had introduced him to. Morgan said completing the mission - getting the owner to sell - ended up being a complex process but he got the job done. As those of you who know Morgan are aware, he is such a nice guy it is hard for anyone to say no to him (a great quality for a broker to have)!

We will be updating our YTD Top 100 Sales Charts when our next bi-weekly report is released. As of today, Larry's sale of Near.com is the 8th biggest sale reported so far in 2021 (his Marketing.com sale is #2). Morgan's sale gives him a spot among the high fliers in the top 20. It has been great seeing the sales boom this year. The only downside is I am getting calluses on my finger tips from constantly pounding the calculator keys - and the year is still young!
